HandsOn Learning

HandsOn Learning empowers young people to be leaders and agents of change through hands-on service-learning initiatives.  HandsOn Learning opportunities include: 

  • Kindness Crew (Elementary School) a series of literacy-based service experiences where children and their families are immersed a community-themed story reading followed by a fun activity.
  • Community Connectors (Middle School) – an initiative that develops compassion and social responsibility in middle school children while demonstrating to each child their power to impact communities through volunteer service regardless of age.
  • Teen Service Squad (High School) – Teen Service Squad members participate in “hands-on” direct service volunteer opportunities led by HandsOn South Florida staff members at a variety of partnering nonprofit agencies in the region. A new Teen Service Squad project is offered each month, and members choose the projects they want to do.
  • Summer Service Camp (ages 13-17) – A summer service-learning experience where teens join HandsOn South Florida to learn about community issues and participate in service to address those needs.
